Israel will not negotiate a ceasefire before Hamas pays a price for its attacks, a senior Israeli official said on Tuesday. “Hamas fired a bunch of rockets, and then of course they want a ceasefire, that's perfect for them, they don't have to pay a price for firing on Jerusalem and then 500 rockets,” the official said. “There will be a ceasefire when we're ready for it,” he added. The official would not confirm or deny a report on Channel 12 News that Israel declined an Egyptian offer to negotiate a ceasefire, nor that Egypt put forward an offer at all. Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi spoke to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Ashkenazi "emphasized that Israel has the right to defend its sovereignty and will not allow attempts to hurt its citizens." He said Israel will continue to use a heavy hand against Hamas terrorists.

Imperfect but forgiven
Israel will not negotiate a ceasefire before Hamas pays a price for its attacks, a senior Israeli official said on Tuesday.

I'd prefer to see the attackers so completely destroyed that the few non-combatants remaining alive in the area where Hamas resides accepts an unconditional surrender.
